I am new to installing Linux on an Alpha machine and I am having a lot of
problems starting the installation on an AXPpci33.
I am using RedHat 3.0.3 and a 4.3Gb Quantum Atlas SCSI drive. The machine
has 64Mb and an S3 compatible display adapter. I get as far as a milo
prompt I then enter "boot fd0:vmlinux.gz root=/dev/fd0 load_ramdisk=1" and
insert the bootkernel (allright, I insert the bootdisk and then press
enter) , I think this is where the problem is, WHAT bootdisk / kernel
whatever should I use & where can I find it?

Another problem is a Matrox Millenium on an AXPpci33 (noname), when I
insert the card and boot the machine it takes about five minutes before the
firmware initializes, is there anyone out there with a firmware newer than
